When you are too close anything which is not much in height may not show up in the rear view mirror!
precisely........also small kids playing in the building is a very big danger.

reverse camera helps one to see if small kids, or pets are behind......which a normal rear view mirror wont show

I have heard that when in the off mode the mirror is a little dark and hence a tiny bit more diffcult to see back in the night.. is it true??

yes its a little dark

but managable.....its similar to the anti glare rear view mirrors u get in markets

but in worst case scenario, where its pitch dark outside.......and u cant see anything with camera, u can always remove the mirror and see with the original mirror.

but i dont think that will happen, coz i dont find any probs with mirror even in dark areas
